The Lord's Prayer in a Global Age
  • By William Thompson-Uberuaga
Product Description
So many Christians pray the Lord's Prayer. It is almost ""second nature."" This book is meant to help these people pray it more deeply and lovingly. Ecumenical and even striving to be global in nature, this book explores what the Scriptures teach us about this prayer, how the Christian tradition has approached this prayer in its long history, and how many of our contemporary concerns challenge the way we can pray this prayer, and also how the prayer can provide insights for those same concerns. People of all persuasions, believers and nonbelievers, ""nones,"" and followers of the world's great religions will also find many of their concerns given serious consideration in this book. If you think nothing new can be said about the ""Our Father,"" this book may surprise you. ""Writing this book amazed the author on the ability of the Lord's Prayer to break new ground and move us in a more global and catholic direction. But the Father to whom we pray is the Father of heaven and earth, so why not? If you thought nothing new could be said about the Our Father, this book will surprise you."" --Richard Rohr, Founder, Center for Action and Contemplation ""This is a book about the soul of prayer. It may be the most important book that William Thompson-Uberuaga has written yet. As he guides us through the spirituality, history, and content of the Lord's Prayer, the author welcomes people of all religions and no religion to encounter the wonder of community inherent in Jesus' prayer. This is a book of deep spiritual wisdom that emerges from a lifetime of prayer and theological reflection."" --Elaine A. Heath, Dean, Duke University Divinity School ""No other words of Jesus are so widely remembered or so fervently recited as those few phrases known as the Lord's Prayer. Utterly simple and apparently artless in expression, they invite complex reflection and artful examination. William Thompson-Uberuaga provides both in his consideration of the Lord's Prayer that both informs and delights."" --Luke Timothy Johnson, Robert W. Woodruff Professor Emeritus, Candler School of Theology, Emory University ""Thompson-Uberuaga is a true theologian who tirelessly dedicates his life to the study and living of the faith. His years of searching through the most relevant writings and his living experience permeate his beautiful prose, making this book both academically compelling and accessible to the larger educated public."" --Radu Bordeianu, Associate Professor of Theology, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh ""It is good to find a book that reflects so thoroughly and well on one of the foundational texts of Christian life and worship. Thompson-Uberuaga brings together a wide variety of scholarly material that shines light on many different facets of this prayer and helps lift it out of the rut of over-familiarity into which it may have fallen for many Christians."" --Ellen Clark-King, Executive Pastor, Grace Cathedral, San Francisco William Thompson-Uberuaga, an emeritus professor of theology at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, has had a long and distinguished career. He has written seven books, edited and co-edited several others, written numerous articles and reviews, and served as president of the Catholic Theological Society of America.
